The sparkles in the water.................

In 2014 I was able to see a lot of my true heart-dreams come true.  I worked hard every day to keep focused on those particular dreams so they wouldn't die!  In September I had the pleasure of visiting Cape Cod and on that trip I took a detour through Rhode Island and Connecticut.  We don't often talk about those states down here in Texas unless you are from there.  For me, I immediately thought of the movie 'Mystic Pizza' and decided that was a dream to fulfill.  As silly and as nerdy as it sounded - I wanted to experience that. So this adventure through Rhode Island was on the way to Mystic, CT.  (yes the pizza place is real!)

My assistant and I stopped along the waters of Rhode Island on the way to the train station in Providence and these were the moments I was able to capture while standing on the dock.  At first I was completely in shock!  The bright stars DANCED on the top of the water and didn't stop moving one bit.  They were blinding!  I pulled out my camera and HOPED that I could capture even a fragment of what it looked like!  I had never seen anything like that in all my adventures with the water and sunlight.  The video footage tells a better story HERE.

The sparkles in the water were a wonderful reminder to stop and be thankful for creativity and how all things work together for a grander purpose. We have dreams that we write down...and dreams that we live without even thinking about it.  The biggest challenge you can give yourself is daring to look INSIDE yourself and dream the impossible dream and then LIVE the impossible dream!  

Today's Questions:
-Have you fulfilled a life-long dream yet?  Why or why not?
-Is fear stopping you from making a leap?
-What is ONE particular dream that you think about all the time?  Why have you not done it?

To DREAM more join me at the Ladies' RETREAT - July 24-26th 2015.  Open for 5 women!

Below are some of the photography stills from the moments on the dock!  I will never forget this small memento of a time in my life where I was living a dream.

I am so excited to share this with you!  I was tinkering around last night and really had a blast creating this image.  There is so much inside of us to share...and when fear tries to stop us from the simplest of creations...we HAVE to stand up and walk forward.  There is a huge world of eyeballs and hearts out there waiting to grasp the creativity floating in the air and rivers.  

I've noticed fears can stop us in a variety of ways, but most of the ways starts with our MINDS.  Before we even speak positively or negatively about ourselves and our work...our thinking is already there.  As an artist and human being, it is our job to WEED OUT those thoughts.  To dwell on only negative thoughts sets you up in a box as a captive.  To dwell on positive thoughts takes you to many places, faces and dreams.  There is something to be said about walking in a living dream.  

Your art takes you into your dream world and back out into the reality.  One of my biggest passions is to help you understand that and let yourself dream AND DO THE DREAM.  Even the smallest of ideas deserves to be in your life canvas.  Don't let any tiny giant fears hold you back.  Yes, I said "tiny giant"....our fears are masking as GIANTS in our minds, but really they are is up to you to slay the giant and turn your focus upon what really needs to happen.

Take some time today and reflect upon your own fears and giants.  What needs to GO today.  What needs to leave your mind, so you can be FREE to take your ideas forward?  

I look forward to hearing from you about where life is taking you...and where you are letting yourself go as an artist!!!!! 

Much Love

New art and ideas!

I'm still playing around with a new prop that arrived today.  I fully intend to make a skirt out of it.  For today's "playtime" - i made a full character.  I didn't mean to do it but my original ideas spawned a new idea!   I just love letting things flow and go. 


Inspired?  Join me at the Women's retreat in July 2015.
